To zip particular files, you can use the following:

zip yourarchive.zip file1 file2 file3

To zip full directories recursively, you will add the -r flag.

zip -r nameofyourarchive.zip folder

That will zip everything everything that is in the folder that you choose, including any other folders that are inside of it.
